stories of failure & glory

EDITOR@4WOR.COM WE HAVEN’T HAD A Whoops! issue in a long time. That’s mostly because the reader-driven columns are increasingly difficult to get submissions for. So here’s the part of the show when I get down on bended knee with hat in hand and ask the audience for a ducat or two in the form of your anecdotal Whoops submission. Go ahead and email them to editor@4wor.com and don’t forget to include a high-res jpeg image, a description of what happened, and your name, city, state, and (if you want) contact information just in case we have some swag kicking around to send your way. Don’t worry—nothing that’s sent to that email address is shared with shady marketing companies or sold off to mailing lists. It’s just the inbox of the 4WOR…

EDITOR@4WOR.COM “Tremor is Ford’s new ‘rock crushing’ option for Super Duty” FEEL THE TREMOR Tremor is Ford’s “rock crushing” new off-road package for the 2020 Super Duty. With the Power Wagon clearly in its sights—the press release claimed better towing and payload capacities than Dodge’s brute—Ford’s Tremor package includes a 2-inch front-end lift, 35-inch Goodyear Wrangler DuraTrac tires on 18-inch matte-finished wheels, progressive-rate springs, twin-tube shocks with 1.7-inch pistons and internal hydraulic rebounds, an electric locking rear diff and a new Dana limited-slip front diff, the skidplates from the FX4 models, and runningboards that tuck up against the body “for damage control.” The Tremor package is available for XLT, Lariat, King Ranch, and Platinum F-250 and F-350 Super Duty models with either the 7.3L gas or 6.7L Power Stroke diesel engine. Ford’s 10-speed automatic…

• FORMER FORD AND CHRYSler exec Lee Iacocca passed away at age 94. Iacocca was behind the launch of two vehicles that created entire vehicle segments. The Mustang gave birth to the ponycar segment in 1964, and the Dodge Caravan and Plymouth Voyager created the minivan segment in 1984. He was also instrumental in Chrysler’s purchasing AMC, and with it the Jeep brand, in the late 1980s. • NEXT YEAR’S MINT 400 desert race in Las Vegas will take place March 3-8, with racing moving to Friday the 6th (for motorcycle and Limited/Sportsman classes) and Saturday the 7th (for the faster Limited/Unlimited classes).

EDITOR@4WOR.COM SELECTING THE BEST LIMITED-slip or locking differential for your 4x4 depends on many factors, including the type of off-roading you do, how much time you spend off-road, your driving style and personal preference, and your budget.

The good news is that we are here to steer you in the right direction. We’ll help you determine which locker or limited slip will work best for you. First, you have to decide if you want a limited-slip or locking differential and in what axles to put them in. If you spend most of your time on the street and only venture lightly off-road, then you may find that…
